Oh, I wish I could watch it! I made it 2 minutes in, before I was utterly overwhelmed and nauseated from the movement, and background noise, but what a cool idea, to just record a typical conversation.

I've actually found with other shows about autism (Parenthood in particular) - that they do such a good job of portraying the autistic perspective of overwhelming noise and confusion, that ironically I'm not able to tolerate watching it.

Anyway, thanks for posting - I've always enjoyed watching her lectures on YouTube!

I enjoyed that.

The title hinted at her being naked, I was disappointed in that regard.

Thanks for sharing.
I found this a bit amusing because she reminds me so much of my dad, except my dad doesn't talk as much or use as many gestures.

Casual conversation is incredibly important to us as a species, yet there are no robust scientific explanations for it.
I have an ongoing interest in this because like most people in the spectrum I have problems engaging people in conversation. But my intense interests don't seem to be shared by other people on the spectrum. I guess I'll have to keep plugging away until I found some one as interested in language as I am.

she's a bit hard to understand,
i liked daktari, but startrek meeh, only the spock-caracter was intriguing,
in hindsight daktari must have inspired me to want to do something like that & also
got the place at uni for that but the world shifted to 'nope' :mrgreen:
:wink: maybe it's not as bad a place to be, a dr dolittle, as there's already many dr dogoods around
